AUTO - WRC MONTE CARLO RALLY 2014

We came across the most descriptive quote possible from the WRC’s Rallye Monte-Carlo this past weekend. Kris Meeke is no stranger to going fast – and sideways – so this description of those crazy weather and surface conditions make for great reading…

“You can’t describe to people what it’s like to drive on racing slicks in minus three [degrees] on a road covered with snow, down the side of a mountain with a 500ft drop on the outside.

It’s daunting, but that’s the Monte Carlo Rally.”
